NCRPO chief Eleazar, militant leader bond after SONA rallies
National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) director Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar showed the police could be friends with militants by having dinner with one of the leaders of the protests staged during President Rodrigo Duterte’s State of the Nation Address on Monday.
Eleazar recently shared a photo showing him at a restaurant with Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN) Secretary General Renato Reyes Jr.
They were joined by four other guests, including Quezon City Police District chief Senior Superintendent Joyet Esquivel.
BAYAN and other militant groups held a massive rally along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City during Duterte’s SONA to protest his failed promises.
The protests were peaceful because Eleazar, Reyes and other stakeholders talked about ground rules that the rallyists and police should follow.
